Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Good Evening
  Wed. 4/11/18 9:43pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: No big deal but you played Reach The Top off the Are You Old Enough album. Dragon were a NZ band that moved, like many others before and after, to Australia. Huge in the '70s and '80s. I'm sure some version still exists but only one original member survives (and he's not the singer).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 9:45pm efd:

whoops, did I transpose the song and album when I backannounced? I have it listed the right way in the playlist. Did not realize they were from NZ originally!
  Wed. 4/11/18 9:46pm Eddy in Australia:

P.S. You'd love a lot of Dragon's records. I think their very early NZ stuff might even have been a bit weird/hippyish, before they became a pop band in Australia.
  Wed. 4/11/18 9:48pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: As it happens, the song Are You Old Enough is pure pop, although a bit pervy!

Hey, Helta Skelta!!!

Evan, a pleasure to catch your show again. Digging this "the myrmidons" track.

nice version of christine

Love Deep Blue. My wife says the vocalist sounds a bit like Ian Anderson. She's not wrong.

Dumb q: is Hozac short for Horizontal Action? I heard tom scharpling say that, but, a joke?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 10:07pm Ciggy:

Austin HBP. Benches cleared. Big scrum from the pitchers mound towards the Red Sox dugout. Looked worse than it was.

oh, wow!

Hey Evan. I’m an Evan too. Great show. Good tunes. Thanks dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 10:08pm efd:

@herb it does, and it's not such a dumb question because I didn't make that connection until relatively recently. (Horizontal Action was (is?) a fanzine run by the same dude who runs HoZac records)
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:09pm egould310:

Haha! I was just listening to Habibi at work, just before tuning into this show. Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/11/18 10:09pm Alex of Chicago:

yes. hozac == horizontal action the zine
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:10pm Eddy in Australia:

Whoa, Habibi have gotten really good! (Or at least much better than early releases.)
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:11pm Stevel:

Hozac! The more you know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/11/18 10:12pm Alex of Chicago:

horizontal action was a garage punk zine that mixed music stuff with crappy porn (ironically, maybe). they became a label and ditched the porn
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:12pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: I see what you did there! (Thanks for the shout-out, by the way.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 10:15pm efd:

if I were really clever I'd have played them back to back!
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:17pm Eddy in Australia:

I thought of that but figured you were avoiding the obvious. Or something.
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:19pm Stevel:

There are no accidents. Only unexpected opportunities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 10:21pm JakeGould:

Oh man… Thanks for the “Christine” cover and the “Habibi.” *big thumbs up emoji*
  Wed. 4/11/18 10:21pm herb.nyc:

Thx on Hozac; unaware of zine. I'll bet in years to come, someone will be inspired by Hozac and start a label called Chaoz.

when i said, "this is a jam," turns out i was actually listening to some song that came up after siouxsie's christine on youtube. for the record.

Ah, I bought used copy of Running Thermodynamics after Evan played that song, a year or 2 ago. Nothing matched "powerlines".

Charnel Ground is trending a bit lately. Pretty sharp.

If you're a cover credit nerd (like me and Evan!), you'll notice that Mikey Young also masters about every second indie record in Australia.
